BlackBerry Browser shortcuts are available to users who have a BlackBerry smartphone with a physical QWERTY keyboard. These shortcuts are designed to help you navigate webpages while using the BlackBerry Browser.
Turning on Browser Shortcuts
A BlackBerry smartphone can have its BlackBerry Browser shortcuts turned off, so before we start let’s make sure they are enabled first.
1. Launch the BlackBerry Browser 2. Press the Menu key and select “Options” 3. In the General section, select the Enable Keyboard Shortcuts checkbox 4. If a change was made, press the Menu key and select “Save”.
Shortcuts when typing web addresses
Web addresses can sometimes be long — help speed up typing in an address by using my favorite BlackBerry Browser shortcut. While typing an address, simply press the space key to add a period (.) instead of the normal “Alt” & “M” combination. Here are the BlackBerry Browser’s address bar shortcuts:
Press the Space key to insert a period (.) in a web address
Press the Shift and Space key to insert a forward slash (/) in a web address
Press the Escape key to stop loading a webpage
Press and hold the Escape key to close the browser
Shortcuts when viewing a webpage
These are the BlackBerry Browser shortcuts that are designed to help you when viewing websites in the BlackBerry Browser. I like the zoom in and zoom out shortcuts because they allow me to quickly focus into an area of a webpage and then out again when finished.
Press I to zoom in on the current webpage
Press O to zoom out of the current webpage
Press G to navigate from the current screen to the Go Start page, which displays the address bar, recently viewed pages and your Bookmarks
Press H to navigate from the current screen to the page set as your Home Page
Press K to display your Bookmarks
Press A to add the current page as a Bookmark
Press Y to view your recently viewed pages, also known as History
Press R to refresh the page currently displayed on the screen
Press F to find text
Press V to find the next instance of text
Press W to switch between tabs
Press S to view the BlackBerry Browser Options
Navigation of a webpage
The following shortcuts are designed to help you navigate a webpage more efficiently. Pressing the Space key to move down a screen instead of scrolling using the track pad is a time saver.
Press the Shift key and Space key to move up a screen
Press Space to move down a screen
Press T to navigate to the top of the page
Press B to navigate to the bottom of the page
